Signs You May Be Dealing with a Plumbing Leak
While there are many things that can cause plumbing leaks to develop, the most common causes are corroded pipes and shifting foundation/soil. Oftentimes, it’s not always easy to tell when you have a leak, especially if it is located within your home’s slab or another area out of eyesight. Due to this, it is important to become familiar with the signs of a plumbing leak. The earlier you detect it, the less there is a chance of it causing extensive property damage.
Common signs of plumbing leaks include:
- There is noticeable flooding on your property
- You can hear running water even when your taps are off
- Water is beginning to pool around your foundation
- Your water pressure has dropped lower than normal
- There are noticeable wet spots in your yard
- There are damp or wet places of carpet
- You spot water stains on your walls or ceiling
Methods for Detecting Leaks
While some pipes, such as the ones under your sink, are easy to reach, other components of your plumbing system remain underneath your home in the foundation or within the walls. Rather than dig up your yard or rip apart your walls, our Mansfield leak detection specialists utilize infrared imaging that helps us pinpoint the exact location of the problem. This is especially useful for detecting slab leaks.
Another way that is helpful for detecting leaks is to use an acoustic listening device to check for sounds of running water. These devices are so powerful, they can pick up sounds through layers of concrete. If you live in an area that’s too noisy for an acoustic listening device to accurately detect any leaks, we will try to locate them using a heat scanner. As water escapes, it causes a temperature shift that the scanners are able to pick up.
One of the more popular methods for leak detection that we use is video camera inspection. During this, we fit a camera attached to a fiber optic cable that allows us to view real time footage of the interior of your pipes. This allows us to locate the precise issue and determine the proper way to repair it.
